#52 - Jazzy’s Must-Have Ingredients (Keep These Stocked!)

Tell me something… how many times have you bought ingredients for a recipe you were going to make only to throw them away later because you NEVER use them? 🙋‍♀️

Now, one of the questions I get asked frequently is, “Jazzy, what ingredients should I keep in my kitchen?” And let me tell you, I’m all about simplification (so you don’t buy a ton of ingredients you never use!).

I don’t believe in having to use a ton of complicated ingredients to make delicious recipes. In fact, Your Dinner is Planned is all about getting healthy meals on the table without the hassle and overwhelm!  

So naturally, I only have a few signature ingredients that I make sure to keep in my kitchen, and I’m sharing them with you on the Dinner Table Talk Podcast!

Remember, making delicious and healthy home-cooked meals doesn’t mean you have to go crazy at the grocery store. In fact, cooking at home can be so simple (want proof? Your Dinner is Planned is here for you!).

Happy cooking!

#51 - A New Years Resolution Is Bull Crap... Unless You Do This

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2019 already?!

Given it’s January 1st, you’re likely thinking all about those New Year’s resolutions you’ve set for the year, right?

But here’s the dealio, my friend: New Year’s resolutions are bullcrap.

Hold on! Don’t leave yet!

I’m all about setting goals — especially at the beginning of a new year. I’ve set resolutions too.

It’s not the goal setting that’s baloney… it’s when we set goals that we won’t actually stick to, just for the sake of setting goals.

How many times have you set a New Year’s resolution and then, 90 days later, you’re thinking, “Oops… guess I didn’t hit that goal”?

I’m here to make sure you don’t do that in 2019.

On today’s episode of the Dinner Table Talk podcast, I’m coming at you with a planning exercise to make sure you set New Year’s resolutions that are actionable, attainable, and something you’ll actually stick to this year!

You’re going to want to make sure you’ve got a pen + paper (or your phone’s note app!) and some space to actually think this one through.

Let’s make 2019 your best year yet!

#50 - Portion Sizes Are Irrelevant -- Here's Why

I want to end the year with some real talk.

One of the questions I get asked most frequently about the recipes in Your Dinner is Planned is, “What’s the portion size?”

Here’s my answer: it doesn’t matter.

“What?! Jazzy, how can you say that?!”

Here’s the deal: I find that usually when people are focusing on portion sizes, they’re focusing on the wrong things. It’s so important to understand how food affects your body… but when we start to focus on how we feel, portion sizes become irrelevant. Focusing on how you feel teaches you to tune into your body and stop being so hung up on counting calories, following rules, and feeling stressed out. I’m breaking this down more on today’s episode of the Dinner Table Talk podcast!
